Brooklyn Nets guard D’Angelo Russell had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Friday.
The procedure was performed by Dr. Riley Williams III at the Hospital for Special Surgery. No timetable for his return was announced.
“It’s an arthroscopic surgery, so the plan would be for him to return this season,” general manager Sean Marks said. “It’s definitely frustrating for D’Angelo. He’s going into this as another challenge. He knows he’ll bounce back from this and we have no doubts in our mind that he’ll be better and stronger than he was before.”
Russell missed time due to knee injuries last season, but this latest knee injury was not related.
Russell has played in 12 games for Brooklyn this season with team-leading averages of 20.9 points and 5.7 assists.
